As the oldest city in South Africa, Cape Town has a rich, if turbulent, history and the military plays a large part in the Mother City’s story. On September 1, the City of Cape Town launched the official Military Heritage Route.
Comprising of three properties – the Castle of Good Hope, the South African Naval Museum and the Chavonnes Battery Museum – the route incorporates much of Cape Town’s military heritage and aims to expand further with time.
The three sites are hugely significant in the city’s – and the country’s – military history and offer a wealth of information to visitors. Click here for details.
